Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link?
They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may
escape them, but those who are not so lucky can rely on their Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic to intervene
when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional
advice, and understanding.
KOA and LSS
They are such little abbreviations for such
painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns
27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident
in upwards of 95% of those over 50.
Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and
older. (6) Degeneration of
cartilage has a part in each. Pain results from each. When combined
in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical
outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who have
back surgery for their condition and also have knee
osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a little less beneficial
related to social life and activities. Their KOA makes it hard to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or
restricted knee range of motion. Writers of this paper proposed
tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with
KOA. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic brings Montreal chiropractic services to
the care mix to get back
pain and knee pain patients feeling better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND
It’s pretty difficult to
ignore Montreal back pain and knee pain. People suffering any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of recurrent
falls. People who have moderate to severe low back pain and KOA were
3.7 times more at risk for falls. (2) Patients who have KOA and
widespread pain vs patients with KOA and low back pain vs patients with KOA and
multijoint pain vs those with KOA only, patients with
widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher levels
of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can help though.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic uses well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Montreal back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers just
recounted that a combination of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic also uses the research-documented, gentle
spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures,
widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
